This delightfully quaint country cottage is perfect for exploring this peaceful and historic part of Scotland, with spectacular walks and an abundance of nature right on your doorstep.

Set in the heart of the extensive Fassfern Estate, this delightful two-bedroom cottage is surrounded by miles of woodland walks. Pack up a picnic and head off along tree-lined paths or continue over surrounding hills for breathtaking views over Loch Eil towards the mighty Ben Nevis, looking out for deer, birds and butterflies along the way.

Forming part of Fassfern House but with its own private entrance, the property has been tastefully updated to offer modern comfort with plenty of traditional charm retained, complete with open fire, high ceilings and sash windows. Inside, the accommodation is homely and welcoming with tasteful neutral decor, antique artwork and cosy soft furnishings.

Prepare and enjoy delicious homecooked meals in the spacious traditional kitchen, which offers ample workspace and has a dining table to seat four. On those chilly evenings, light the open fire and hunker down on one of the plump and inviting sofas in the lounge before settling in for a relaxing evening in front of the TV, or simply unwind with a good book while listening to the radio.

Upstairs, the bedrooms are light and airy with pretty fabrics, delightful sash windows and antique dressing tables.

Stepping outside, there is a delightful patio with picnic bench for those sunny days. The lawn area beyond is the perfect place for dogs and children to play. With miles of wonderful walks right on the doorstep, there is a new route to discover every day.

Weve been visiting here for a long time. The house, as always recently, was spotless and welcoming. Hard to leave after two weeks, but well be back.

Important. There is no shower, the bath is not easy to get out of. I would not recommend this property to older people or those who have difficulty moving around due to the bath and awkward set up of stairs going from the hall to the bathroom. The furniture is outdated and the sofas are very old and have no support. There are no stable food items lRead moreeft in the property i.e. salt, pepper, tea bags, and no welcome pack so buy all this in Fort William before you arrive. I would not come back here. Hide

What a lovely place. Stayed for a week with my Dad and my two Border Terriers and had a great time. A relaxing bolt hole away from the town (around 10 minutes drive west of Fort William), but a great place for walks outside your front door. Cottage itself is excellent, and really well setup for four people and a couple of dogs. We did a lot of cookRead moreing ourselves, and the kitchen's got everything you need. Bedrooms and bathroom very good, had a bath for first time in years! Relax! Hide
